New kid on the block – meet the Stokke Steps
Meet the curvier, Scandinavian-style cousin – the Stokke Steps – built for parents who embrace quality time together with their little ones. Its ergonomic design is the by-product of resourceful research of the bodies of children, along with their natural interaction at the table with adults or caregivers.
Like all time-strapped parents, we wish to maximise our child-bonding time when we are at home. One of our favourite ways to do so is over meals and table fare.
Now that she is a cheeky toddler who loves social interaction, having her at our table during meals make it so much more fun for all of us, as we love watching her eat independently, and she loves to lean over to feed us too. Most importantly, she needs to be seated in a safe and comfortable highchair which allows her to chow her meals while basking in daddy and mummy’s company.
Love at first sight
If you are seeing the Stokke Steps for the first time, be prepared to be enthralled by its minimalistic design. Its sturdy structure and smooth finish tells you this is quality at its best.
Constructed with solid beech wood to create its form, this piece of kids’ furniture fits in any contemporary home seamlessly. The husband was certainly mesmerised by this Norwegian beauty!
This fair beauty sits beautifully in our home but it’s more than just good looks. Find out why the Stokke Steps is earning fans with its winning factors.
Functionality meets substance
As parents, safety is held in the highest regard. We were reassured when we learned that the Stokke team has invested five years in R&D before launching this new baby.
The Stokke Steps places emphasis on child safety and is equipped with the 5-point harness system, making safety-first a priority feature of this classic beauty. Even while seated, active children can attempt to climb out and thus the folks at Stokke went a step further to enhance the high chair with a better seat belt mechanism as opposed to the regular buckle-lock design.
Its user-friendliness means parents can adjust the backrest to the preferred choice of two settings – to bring baby closer or further away from the table. The roomy space around the baby’s body is comfortable and secure enough without restricting your little one’s movements.
For enhanced comfort, a footrest allows little feet to bend and rest at ease, while the footrest is easily adjusted to suit your child’s needs and new height over the years. Priding itself as a “no tools required” highchair, the need for tools to make any adjustment is a thing of the past!
Versatility for the long run
When the Stokke team designs a new product, they make sure that it lasts long enough to suit the needs of your growing child. With versatility in mind, the Stokke Steps allows your newborn to stay close to the family even during meal times or when you are doing work at the table.
With accessories such as the Stokke Steps Bouncer, your new baby lays snuggly in there and is always near daddy or mummy for added assurance and security.
As your child is ready to wean, introduction to solids require adult supervision too, and the Stokke Steps is easily converted to a highchair to protect your little one with the Stokke Steps Baby Set.
Attach the optional tray and your child has his own meal table or a personal space to play, which can be easily cleaned after use. Even without the tray, this highchair can be pushed to align with your regular dining table, so the family can dine together at the same place.
Fit the Baby Set with the Stokke Steps Baby Set Cushion to offer your munchkin extra comfort with the soft cushion. Parents would be happy to know that the fabric is water repellent too – no worries about spillage during mealtimes!
Removing and putting the Baby Set on is easy – simply align the loops and knobs, and let them “click” to lock securely.
When your child is ready to sit on the chair on her own, remove the adjustable Baby Set (which comprises the backrest and safety harness), to convert the Stokke Steps into a chair for your active toddler.
How’s that for responsive furniture that grows with your child and yet caters to their changing needs?
Indeed, this highchair takes one through the years, and this is a one-of-its-kind transformable children’s chair that’s second to none. While its price tag may be a bit on the steeper side, it certainly makes for a worthwhile investment for the long term.
